You can create a series of incremental unique alternate part numbers, starting with X00001 and incrementing by 1 (X00002, X00003, and so on) when you manually add an inventory item or create inventory items using the Data Viewer inventory upload feature. All alternate IDs will start with X and increment by one each time. They will never be reused.
This feature is turned on by default, but is optional to use.
